    zoomers and people who lived outside minnesota will never understand the joy of walking into a Shinder's and seeing rack after rack of trading cards, pokemon cards, official art, holographic posters, plushes only available in japan... the 90s were such a good fucking time

    what the hell happened to the world? it's not that i grew up, either. all the older folks i talk to agree, in 30 years we've completely regressed

    i can't stand it anymore. it used to be so good. i'm sorry it's not here for you anymore.

      nostalgia distorts your perception to make it seem that way. Heck, I'm a zoomer and I already feel that way about the early 2010s. Everything you dislike about the modern day was either present or had a counterpart in the 90s. You were just blissfully unaware of it all as a child. History begins when you develop an awareness of events around you.

      Gee it’s almost like 99% of people will agree that the world was better when they were younger. People older than 90s kids will say their childhood was the best.

Everything you dislike about the modern day was either present or had a counterpart in the 90s. You were just blissfully unaware of it all as a child.

        Its an objective fact that the modern times are awful. 2012 and everything afterwards are the clown years. Thats what I've noticed.

        This "you only think the past was better because nostalgia". I've been hearing this shit since 2005, and I may have bought it back then, and it may be partly true. But these days? No, the past was better because the present is hell. Its like everything before 2012 was some illusion. The world has gone to such shit, that even zoomers watching 80s/90s home movies noticed that something happened. And to think, that objectively speaking, even the 90s were a huge downgrade compared to the 80s on alot of things! Maybe zoomers are better off not knowing life from back then, ignorance is bliss. They'll probably feel nostalgia for the early 2020s only because the world ends up getting even worse.

          Don't use words when you don't know what they mean. Things are better when you're a child, and you grew up and think that things have changed when you just stopped being naive.

          Both sides are cherrypicking. Red/Green has the better sprites overall, because Blue's sprites aren't "improved" sprites, they're alternate poses. Red/Green were meant to be the "default" sprites, and looking at some mons with wonky or off model Blue sprites (Blastoise, Mewtwo, Pidgeot, Tauros, Magneton, Kadabra, Weezing, Dugtrio, Kabuto, Eevee, Kakuna, Jynx, etc.) demonstrates this.

    Gen 5 is the last one I really acknowledge as Pokemon. I’m in my mid 20s now and feeling my passion for the franchise die is pretty depressing.

      Same.
      Gen 5 got me back into pokemon (I skipped 3&4).
      Gen 5 just resonated with what I thought the ethos of pokemon was even though there were some misses the attempt was at least genuine to the spirit of the series.
      X/Y were "good" in the sense of the introduced novelty of 3D. If you took away 3d it didn't have much going for it.
      SuMo killed the series for me again. It was blatantly obvious they were scraping the bottom of the barrel. Glad I never got into swsh and have no hope for sv

    I think people who shit on these sprites are viewing them through the lens of their current designs. This was before Pokemon was a franchise, back when it was created as just a cool little Monster Collector RPG. Almost every franchise has inconsistent designs at the start before establishing an artstyle. In Pokemons case, the anime codified most of the designs and thus it's more "sanitized"

        Because Blue sold like shit (compared to Red/Green), and Koffing's Red/Green sprite is fine. They only really care about Pokemon outside of Japan when it comes to numbers, unless it has to do with Anniversaries or sales, Pokemon might as well be Japan only.

      The Gen 1 "bad sprites" meme comes from people that don't know about how franchises usually start out with different-ish designs than later on. There are a few eh ones but most look perfectly good
